Teffo’s case of defamation of character against Malema, according to the red berets, is “frivolous.
On Friday, the lawyer who previously represented four of the men accused in the murder trial of soccer star Senzo Meyiwa opened the case. According to the EFF, Teffo filed the case to gain attention.“Teffo has opened a case against the President of the EFF because he has an uncontrollable desire to be in the news cycle.
Teffo is an embarrassment to the legal profession, because he has used the tragedy of the late Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa to build a profile for himself,” the EFF said.“It is an objective fact that Malesela Teffo would not be a person of interest to the public or the media, if it was not for the never-ending case of Senzo Meyiwa, and since he has been removed from that process, he is seeking other avenues to remain a topic of discussion.
According to the EFF, Malema’s case is without merit. “The matter is so frivolous and is brought by such a clownish individual, that if any self-respecting law enforcement agency were to take it seriously, the CIC Julius Malema would represent himself and deal decisively with an imposter.
”The EFF also questioned Teffo’s suitability for a legal career. “The legal profession is clearly not designed for characters such as him, who enjoy being the topic of discussion rather than being officers of the court who prioritise justice over self-seeking ambitions,” the EFF said.
